Tekken 8 Reina Revealed

Reina is known as the Purple Lightning and her fighting style seems similar to Heihachi’s strikes and Kasumi’s grappling techniques. According to Harada, her background and origin will remain a secret until the release of Tekken 8.

Aside from the character reveal, another stage was revealed somehow located in an offsite Mishima territory known as Secluded Training Ground. This battle stage is similar to Tekken 7’s Mishima Dojo where it is surrounded by various Eastern god statues and is easily collapsible as the floors and the walls can easily be broken making it a perfect area to perform juggle combos with no problems.
